Has your heavy period been keeping you away?
If you're like 1 in 5 women with heavy periods, you want to get back to life. NovaSure® is a one- time, five-minute procedure that can lighten or end your heavy period. No pills. No hormonal side effects. For 77.7% of women, menstrual bleeding is dramatically reduced or stopped. It's a simple procedure that can be done in your doctor's office, usually for the cost of a copay. Talk to your doctor about stepping back into life with NovaSure. Life will be there to welcome you back.
NovaSure is an endometrial ablation procedure that works by removing the endometrium, or the lining of the uterus (the part that causes the bleeding), with a quick delivery of radiofrequency energy.
NovaSure works in four simple steps:
|Your doctor slightly opens your cervix (the opening to the uterus), inserts a slender wand, and extends a triangular mesh device into the uterus||The mesh gently expands, fitting to the size and shape of your uterus|
|Precisely measured radio frequency energy is delivered through the mesh for about 90 seconds, gently removing the lining of the uterus||The mesh device is pulled back into the wand and both are removed from the uterus|
No part of the NovaSure device remains inside your body after the procedure.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: NovaSure is for premenopausal women with heavy periods due to benign causes who are finished childbearing. Pregnancy following NovaSure can be dangerous. NovaSure is not for those who have or suspect uterine cancer, have an active genital, urinary or pelvic infection, an IUD or a metal uterine implant. NovaSure is not a sterilization procedure. Rare but serious risks include but are not limited to thermal injury, perforation and infection. Temporary side effects may include cramping, nausea, vomiting, discharge and spotting.
Benefits of Endometrial Ablations
Endometrial ablation has been evaluated against the gold standard of removing the uterus completely (hysterectomy). An ablation is shown to be effective and associated with fewer complications. Some additional benefits to lighter periods may include:
- Reduction in period pain
- Improvement in PMS symptoms
- Increase in days you feel like having sex due to fewer symptoms
